    "Something that I love about Jesus is how radical he was when he came to earth. He entered a society with political, racial, and gendered boundaries and ignored them all!  He gave us a perfect example of loving others without boundaries."

    "Have you ever noticed that God seems to elevate unlikely heroes? Moses had a stutter and was terrified of public speaking, yet God raised him up to challenge Pharaoh and lead a nation out of oppression and to the promised land. If God can do all of that, what could He do with you if you only let Him?"

    "Asking for help is not a sign of weakness, but an opportunity for the strength of the community to shine."

    "Any time we get to disengage from our regular setting it gives Jesus an opportunity to heal us. We may not have the opportunity to go away for days at a time, but even walking around my apartment building and listening to crickets above the hum of traffic heals the part of me that feels captive to stress."

    "I struggle with feeling disappointment with my life because it will never be glamorous, I will never be famous, I haven’t achieved anything inspiring, I am never going to make it on to the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. 

    And lately in these moments I feel God asking me if I can be okay with it, with myself, with my life. “Can you handle your life’s purpose simply being to serve the elderly?”

    “For whatever you have done unto the least of these, you have done it unto me”. 
    I’ve started to realize that I haven’t even begun to scratch the surface when it comes to God. God is in my nursing home!

    "Asking for prayer creates community - there is something truly comforting about knowing that someone else is thinking about you."
